These are the hallmarks of the three Persons in one God, the Trinity, says Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household. In this book, Fr. Cantalamessa invites you to turn to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit so that you can enter into and experience the relationship of love that the divine Persons share with one another. Contemplating the Trinity features a full-color inset of four famous works of art that depict the Trinity. Book jacket.
